Folic acid deficiency is common in pregnant women, alcoholics, in patients whose diets do not include raw fruits and vegetables, and in people with structural damage to the small intestine. Low folic acid levels, however, can also be the result of a primary vitamin B12 deficiency that decreases the ability of cells to take up folic acid.

Neisseria gonorrhoeae may infect the anal/rectal canal of sexually active individuals. Detection of this organism is important for determining the risk for disease progression or transmission.
Also Known As: Urine, pain free
Used to determine the presence of sickling hemoglobins. (e.g. hemoglobin-s, hemoglobin c-Harlem). It is important to detect Hb-S in order to determine which individuals are at risk of crisis when exposed to prolonged anoxia that may occur during surgery, athletic programs or high altitude conditions.
Also Known As: Sickle Cell Test, Hgb Solubility
The Hepatitis B vaccine is recommended for those who have not been previously vaccinated. This test looks for IgM antibody to hepatitis B core antigen and is a reliable marker for acute hepatitis B infection.
Surface antigen usually appears in the serum following exposure to Hepatitis B virus and peaks shortly after onset of symptoms. It typically disappears within 1 to 3 months. Persistence of Hepatitis B surface antigen for greater than 6 months is a prognostic indicator of chronic Hepatitis B infection.
Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) is responsible for several clinically significant human viral diseases, with severity ranging from inapparent to fatal. There are two HSV serotypes that are closely related antigenically. HSV Type 2 is more commonly associated with genital tract and neonatal infections.
Also Known As: HSV type 2
This 4th generation HIV Ag/Ab Combo assay is intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of HIV1/HIV2 infection, including acute or primary HIV-1 infection.
